The Way We Worked
April 8, 2018

On Thursday, April 5th, the Sublette County Library in Pinedale kicked off the opening celebration for their newest exhibit, "The Way We Worked."

During the month of April, the Pinedale Library will host The Way We Worked, a Museum on Main Street exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibition Service. The exhibit will be on display at the Pinedale Library from April 5th until May 5th. It comes to Sublette County through the Wyoming Humanities Council, is funded by the U.S. Congress, and is based on an exhibition created by the National Archives.

To correspond with this exhibit, the Pinedale and Big Piney Libraries have collaborated with several local agencies and businesses to bring related lectures, lunches, history and how-to workshops and other events in both Pinedale and Big Piney. The Big Piney Library will host a companion exhibit focusing on the way we worked right here in Sublette County and featuring historic area photographs and recordings from local seniors talking about their first jobs. The mini exhibit will be available for viewing at the Big Piney Library from April 5th until May 5th.
